Exclusive Podcast: BROADWAY'S BACKBONE with Book Writer, Joe DiPietroExclusive Podcast: BROADWAY'S BACKBONE with Book Writer, Joe DiPietro

In this episode: Broadway's Shannon Lewis grew up in a rural Canadian suburb and at age 19 was hand picked by Susan Stroman to make her Broadway debut, after a 'Crazy for You' casting director saw her in a Toronto theme park show. The essence of this podcast is having integrity, the importance of the respect of your peers, and to have your talent and drive ready, so that when someone opens a door for you, you can walk right in.

Its substance, however, is similar to that sugary treat: delightful at first, but just a little too much after a while. (more...)
